Ygnite 2023 Organizers

Ygnite 2023 could not be possible without the efforts of the conference organizers and advisors. These individuals brainstorm, develop, and execute the conference in all of its capacities. ​

We would like to thank all those who have contributed to this year's Ygnite, especially those working behind the scenes. This endeavor would not have been possible without their hard work.
